Harold Ramis's Personal History of Film Comedy

Director, writer, and actor Harold Ramis (Animal House, Caddyshack, Stripes, Ghostbusters, Analyze This, Groundhog Day) has brought us some of the funniest moments in modern film. Listen to this comedy guru's idiosyncratic journey through his favorite film comedies. With film clips ranging from the Marx Brothers (Groucho, Chico, Harpo, Gummo, and Zeppo) to his latest, Year One, this film survey is ripe with sidesplitting potential.
